    Saka is a real talent. I was awed in this game. He has more potential than most attacking players in the current Super Eagles. I wish he chooses Nigeria over England but I doubt it.

    • I Wish the same for him. Lets compare him to players in similar positions. He is not far better than the likes of Chukwueze, but he will definitely add Much needed extra depth in the squad. Because lately I feel the problem with the Super Eagles is strength in depth, its getting better now but, that has been our biggest downfall when the going gets tough in a match there is normally no Game Changer on the bench, despite Kalu of late as Rohr trust him most even though he is still not our most talented Impact player. Nigeria needs to try by all means to get SAKA and EZE the boys are damn good. EZE also made some cameo runs which if you saw his balance most players on our squad with the exception of a handful do not possess suvh balance
